Cast On: Faded Party Top

On my actual birthday back in November I used my personal day to stay home and just introvert and knit. It was glorious and I cast on not one but TWO sweaters that day. So I’m going to give you a peak at the first one.

This is going to be the Party Top by AbbyeKnits in my stash of Moonstone Dyeworks Merino DK. I have started with Wild Honey color for the color and the first section of the fade.

I took my measurements and cast on a 40 inch bust size to allow for 2 inches of negative ease on my 42 inch bust. I even put the project in my birthday present knitting bag my family got me from Tanneicasey. With all my travel in November and Thanksgiving chaos I’m not sure I ever showed that to you all.

The bag holds my pattern, yarn and supplies nicely. And this fade even looks lovely just sitting in the bag! I didn’t get very far for two reasons and the first is that twisted rib takes forever for me as I’m a thrower.

And the second reason is that I realized I probably need to gauge swatch if I am going to make a successful sweater. I have two skeins of the Hard Cider so I think I will work from the outside of one ball to make and wash a swatch for gauge. This is a cropped fitted sweater so I best not take any chances…even though I’d rather just be making the sweater.

Happy Knitting!!
